Summary Applications of Environmental Chemistry provides the basic equations, theories, and principles required to understand -- at a practical level -- frequently encountered topics in environmental chemistry. It does not overwhelm with excess information but answers the most frequently asked questions clearly and succinctly. The easy-to-use structure makes it a handy resource. Lists containing "rules of thumb" supply methods for making quick estimations.
Subject Environmental chemistry.
